This plan serves as a compass for educators, community leaders, organizers, and outreach specialists, providing them with the essential knowledge and tools to communicate effectively about the Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB). It is a strategic resource designed to enhance understanding of CRB identification, its impacts, and the management practices necessary to protect our islands. With specific messaging tailored for diverse audiences, this guide aims to activate stakeholders across our communities to amplify our collective efforts in preserving the natural and cultural beauty of Hawai’i from the impacts of CRB.

The CRB Communications plan was produced through a collaborative effort between CRB Response, Invasive Species Committees, Hawaii Invasive Species Council, 643-Pest and Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species.
